Let rip…

As much as I love fashion and trying out new things, there are simply too many trends for one girl to keep up with. Take for example ripped jeans, they totally missed me as I haven’t really been into jeans for a long while. But recently, I keep thinking about ripped jeans, I’m like a woman possessed. Now, I’m not wanting to do a Gisele….

I’m not talking trashy ripped, I’m old enough to remember that the first time round in the 80s! I’m thinking sexy, a la Balmain and Maison Martin Margiela.

    Jean fashion changes far too quickly for me to keep up, I’m still alternating between raw denim and super faded pegged jeans! Buuut the ripped jeans do look pretty cool, I like the horizontal slashes more than simply chunks missing!

    ripped jeans is one of the trends that i’m also feeling right now. i want to just grab a cheap pair so that i don’t invest in anything too expensive.

    Hi there-I reckon this is a diy job, a lot cheaper on an unwanted pair!!

    Ripped denim is so cool. I especially love it in the second set, (with the white tank) top left. :)Thanks for the comment! ♥xo/ fashion chalet

    Gisele looks scary on those shots! But I like the Balmain ones.

    I love ripped jeans, and i really enjoy it when people wear patterned tights underneath so there’s that interesting suprise awaiting on lookers. but yes. too many fads in the jean world.

    That Giselle shoot was seriously repulsive.

    I did a diy months ago on the Margiela jeans but went lighter, sorta like Balmain showed in the recent fashion weeksso I guess you might say Christophe copied me!well probably not, but anyway I love this lookand I sympathize on not keeping up w/ every trend – I, for one, am not really down w/ velvet, cropped tops and high waisted front pleated man trousers

    I really love the look of ripped jeans – it’s so raw and sexy. Having said that though, I’m not a jeans wearing person so I can’t rock this look at all but you should definitely give it a go!
